Today we have USA Today Bestselling Author, Stacey Kennedy. She’s an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after. Together, they have two small children who can always make her smile, and who will never be allowed to read Mommy’s books. If she’s not plugging away at a new story, you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Supernatural, True Blood, Lost Girl, and Sons of Anarchy.
In her newest release, BARED, we are introduced to the wonderfully erotic world of CLUB SIN. Today she’s answering the question, “How did you take the BDSM scenes to the next level in BARED?”
Well, this was easier than I expected, and it wasn’t only Cora and Aidan (BARED) that were taken to the next level. So, let’s start with Dmitri and Presley first. In Claimed, Dmitri was quite soft with the newbie Presley. He gave her the time she needed to become comfortable in Club Sin. However, as I was writing BARED I discovered just how much they’d grown as a couple. There are a couple of moments in BARED where we see that Dmitri isn’t the big softie he was with her before. He’s not as gentle and he does expect more from his submissive.
So that was pretty neat experiencing their journey.
Now where it came to Cora and Aidan, they just naturally let me up the level of BDSM because Cora had been in the lifestyle for a while. She knows herself as a submissive and knows her limits. This allowed Aidan to do things to Cora that Dmitri wouldn’t have done with Presley simply because she wasn’t ready.
What things you ask?
First, I’ll say that Aidan knows Cora and understands what she needs. He knows how far to push her and also knows when she simply needs him to be there for her. This meant that when they played it felt a lot more natural. To me, it was very beautiful—seeing a submissive and a Dom playing with each other in a way that extended sex. Aidan gives Cora what she needs and when she needs it, because he as her Dom for two years is connected to her in a way that a new D/s relationship wouldn’t have.
Now for the good stuff. Here is the biggie. In CLAIMED, there was only one sex scene. Yes, there were some BDSM scenes where Dmitri is guiding and teaching Presley. But in BARED I didn’t need to have those moments, so it opened the door for a lot of naughty sex. And by sex I mean, a scene with wax, anal sex, a double flogging, refusal of orgasm, nipple clamps, punishment by spanking, and lots and lots of sex!
So, how did I take the BDSM to the next level? Well, I’ll simply say that Aidan and Cora allowed me to—that’s why!! And who am I to argue with characters? <grins>
Prepare to be BARED…
“A hot blend of raw sensuality, this is an author to watch!”
~Eden Bradley, author of THE DARK GARDEN and DANGEROUSLY BOUND
In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love.
At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him.
Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and surrender. He refuses to allow her to submit to any other man—nor does she want to. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing. For as they give in to passion, they must lay bare their souls for a love that could heal—and free—them both.
Bared is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
